Doja Cat Wants to Record a Hip-Hop Album with Jay Versace and 9th Wonder
Doja Cat is capping off an incredible year, and she has more in store for 2022.
Taking to Instagram Live on Christmas Eve, the “Kiss Me More” hitmaker shared her future plans including two new projects, one pop and the other hip-hop.
The first would be a 7-track pop-rap album, followed by a 12-song hip-hop album, and she wants Jay Versace and 9th Wonder to produce the latter.
“New project, 12 songs, all of them, every fu**in’ one, Jay Versace and 9th Wonder,” she said. “Jay is like a fantastic producer.”

After she shouted him out, Jay Versace popped up in her IG Live. “I would do a 12-14-song album with you and 9th Wonder,” she told him.
9th Wonder also responded after hearing his name mentioned. “Say what now?” he tweeted.
While Doja has had major success in pop, she still wants to be known as a rapper. “Anyone who says that I’m not a rapper is in denial,” she said in response to the debate over whether she should be classified as a rapper or a pop artist. “They don’t know what they’re talking about.”
Doja released her latest album Planet Her in June. It earned her eight Grammy nominations including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.
